Dear InfraGard Los Angeles Members, Partners and Donors,
InfraGard Los Angeles is grateful for the LA Sheriff, Joint Regional Intelligence Center, FBI Los Angeles Division and all our seven county partners whose information sharing and participation supports the InfraGard mission. IGLA remains the flagship of InfraGard Alliances across the nation. This is a direct result of your attendance at classes and events and engagement with FBI L.A. Division, InfraGard L.A. Staff and Sector Chiefs. Our volunteer Board of Directors and Board Advisors are the finest in business matters and law enforcement collaboration. Lastly is our gratitude to our FBI Private Sector Coordinators and Intelligence Analysts who provide work products that are current, relevant and actionable across all sectors and industries.
In September, InfraGard National Member’s Alliance held its annual Congress where FBI Director, Christopher Wray, addressed a packed house full of InfraGard representatives from across the nation. Director Wray expressed his support for the FBI’s public-private partnerships for almost an hour. In referring to InfraGard members, Director Wray stated “IG members are brand ambassadors and partnership is critical to our success.” InfraGard L.A. will continue to make strides to embolden Director Wray’s statements.
InfraGard L.A. maintains its proactive approach to training, offering one in kind classes to include Physical Vulnerability Assessment 101 and Intelligence for the Corporate Environment. Visit www.infragardlosangeles.org to see what training fits your business or industry needs. We are continually seeking ways to provide our partners with the tools needed to get ahead of their sector threats. We will continue to empower our chapter by providing two-way communication among the sectors. This communication will enhance the public’s understanding for the FBI intelligence cycle, threshold of reportable information, and ultimately information sharing in a cross-sector capacity.
Our FBI Coordinators and Intelligence Analysts are working hard to address requests for Intel sharing created specifically for and delivered to the individual sectors. We are looking forward to our 3rd Quarter Threat Briefing, focusing on our Information Technology Sector (although highly cross-sector). We will be bringing in dynamic experts to discuss the latest cyber trends and policies affecting you and your company. Active InfraGard membership is required due to the nature and sensitivity of the material being disseminated. Stay tuned for the upcoming threat topics and registration. Log-in at www.infragard.org to insure the information in your membership profile is current.
We say “thank you” to Karl Mattson, who served as our Banking and Finance sector co-chief. We wish him well on his future endeavors! With the many industries in each of the PPD-21, DHS Critical Infrastructures (https://www.dhs.gov/cisa/critical-infrastructure-sectors) InfraGard L.A. is seeking candidates for the Banking and Finance Sector co-chief, Food and Agriculture Sector chief, and National Monuments Sector chief. Visit https://www.infragardlosangeles.org/sector-chief.shtml for more details.

85% of America’s critical infrastructures and key resources (CIKR) are owned by the private sector, but law enforcement is charged with protecting them in order to keep our country functioning. The need for a partnership between CIKR stakeholders and law enforcement is obvious and critical. lnfraGard Los Angeles provides a vehicle for that partnership through a trusted forum for the exchange of information pertinent to CIKR protection. InfraGard members operate in all 16 DHS Critical Infrastructure Sectors as well as Los Angeles region-specific ones.
